Mike Buchanan (1957-) is a British men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher, formerly a business consultant before retiring in 2010. His political party Justice for Men & Boys http://j4mb.org.uk - 'J4MB' - was registered with the Electoral Commission in February 2013.
Mike was the key organizer of the very successful second International Conference on Men's Issues held in London in 2016 http://icmi16.wordpress.com and is the key organizer of the fourth conference, to be held in 2018 http://icmi18.wordpress.com.
At the time of writing (September 2017) J4MB remains the only party in the English-speaking world campaigning for the human rights of men and boys on many fronts, and the only anti-feminist party.
The party has among its objectives the end of discriminatory policies against men, and an end to other manifestations of feminism which attack many of the pillars of civilized societies including marriage, the family, education, the political system, the justice system, the media, business... and more. Feminism is a female supremacy ideology driven by misandry (the hatred of men). It has assaulted males (including the unborn) and many females (including the unborn) for 30+ years in the UK, and across much of the developed world.
In 2008 Mike founded LPS publishing http://lpspublishing.co.uk/titles.html, in 2012 The Anti-Feminism League http://fightingfeminism.wordpress.com and Campaign for Merit in Business http://c4mb.wordpress.com. He worked as a consultant for the Conservative party over 2006-8 but resigned his party membership in late 2009 (along with other party members) in protest at Conservative party leader David Cameron's stated intention to introduce all-women shortlists to select prospective parliamentary candidates for some constituencies for the forthcoming general election. To enable this, Cameron planned to employ legislation introduced in 2004 by the radical feminist Labour MP Harriet Harman.
That legislation enabled political parties to use women-only prospective parliamentary candidate shortlists for the ensuing five general elections i.e. FOR 25 YEARS. The proposed legislation hadn't been mentioned in the Labour Party's 2000 general election manifesto.
Following the furore caused by Cameron's intention to introduce all-women shortlists, the plan was quietly shelved.
Mike also runs The Alternative Sexism Project http://thealternativesexismproject.wordpress.com.
Mike's written ten books since 2008:
'2015 general election manifesto', the manifesto of J4MB for the general election being held on 7 May 2015, was published in late January 2015.
'Feminism: the ugly truth' was published in ebook editions (including Kindle) on 13 February 2012 (ISBN 9780957168800). A critique of radical feminism, a movement of angry misandrous (men-hating) women which assaults men, women, children, marriage, the family, the legal system, academia, the media, democracy and business... and much more. It causes the early deaths of many men and women. Chapter titles include, 'Are you a misogynist if you only hate feminists?', 'How does feminism kill many men and women?', 'Are some feminists (e.g. Tracey Emin) a pain in the arts?', 'Why must we stop funding Women's Studies and Gender Studies courses?', and 'Are feminists delusional? Is the pope a Catholic? Do bears crap in woods?' The Kindle edition contains a sample chapter from 'Two Men in a Car' titled, 'Would you like to have sex with my wife?' along with that book's plate section (16 photographs).
'The Glass Ceiling Delusion: the REAL reasons more women don't reach senior positions' After more than 30 years working as an executive with major corporations and running his own business consultancy, Mike understood why more women don't make it to senior positions in general, and the boardroom in particular. He realised that the various assertions made by feminists on the subject were ill-informed and generally wrong - especially their conspiracy theories such as the 'glass ceiling' - so he decided to put the record straight with this book.
'David and Goliatha: David Cameron - heir to Harman?' This book considers the world of men and women in the workplace, and chronicles the enactment by a Conservative prime minister (David Cameron) of legislation that was the brainchild of militant feminist Labour MPs. The Equality Act 2010 substitutes the principle of 'equality of opportunity' by 'equality of outcome' in the public sector, for the first time in British law. This title has been withdrawn from publication as almost all its content (and more besides) is contained within 'The Glass Ceiling Delusion'.
'The Joy of Self-Publishing' A comprehensive guide to self-publishing in the modern era, with an emphasis on the practical issues involved, including how to make the best of the Print-on-Demand ('POD') business model and ebook publication for major e-readers including Kindle, iPad, Nook etc. The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions. The latter contains a sample chapter from 'Two Men in a Car' titled, 'Would you like to have sex with my wife?' as well as the book's plate section (16 photographs).
'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded people' and 'Buchanan's Dictionary of Quotations for right-minded Americans'. Quotations delivering insight, inspiration, and amusement to people whose political persuasions are right-of-centre. To quote the bestselling British writer Quentin Letts, 'Right is right, Left is wrong'.
'The Marriage Delusion: the fraud of the rings?' Also available in a paperback version with the imaginative title, 'The Fraud of the Rings'. A critique of marriage which argues that most adults in the developed world in the modern era are unsuited to the institution. The book also makes recommendations to reduce the number of unhappy marriages and thereby bring down the number of divorces. Now wouldn't that be a good thing?
'Two Men in a Car (A Businessman, a Chauffeur, and Their Holidays in France)' The tales of two holidays in France enjoyed by Mike Buchanan and his colourful socialist chauffeur Paul Carrington. The book contains 16 colour photographs taken during the holidays. The book is available in paperback and Kindle editions.
